A Panasonic heat pump in Auckland homes or businesses does more than cool and heat the building. It can also purify the air and fight the good fight against indoor air pollution. We usually think of air pollution as an outdoor thing. Smog, exhaust fumes, factory emissions and similar nasty things come to mind whenever the “pollution” word comes to mind. But take it from us. Polluted air is found inside homes and offices, and in New Zealand, it is particularly bad.
In 2017, the Building Research Association of New Zealand released a report which contained several interesting findings. The report stated that indoor air quality was identified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as one of the top five environmental hazards in the Western world. However, New Zealand was well behind other countries in research, public knowledge and programmes to resolve the problem. When you consider New Zealand’s excessively high levels of asthma, rheumatic fever, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and winter mortality, this lack of research and knowledge is a concern.
Poor air quality within New Zealand homes and businesses can be caused by many things: cooking appliances, solvent cleaning products and scented candles, cigarette smoke, emissions from wood fires and gas heaters, or excessive moisture which can promote the growth of mould and fungal spores in damp areas. It doesn’t have to be this way. By installing selected Panasonic heat pumps in Auckland homes and businesses, we can improve the quality of the air we breathe.
A great example is Panasonic heat pumps featuring the nanoe X system. Nanoe X inhibits micro-organisms and deactivates 99% of airborne bacteria, viruses and mould. It also catches and deactivates 99% of bacteria and viruses, which means cleaner and healthier air inside the home, or office. Indoor air pollution is a big problem in New Zealand, but a Panasonic heat pump with a nanoe X system built into it is an effective way to make that air much cleaner and healthier.
We’ll happily supply and install a sophisticated air purifying Panasonic heat pump for you, but there are other things we can do to improve the quality of the air you breathe. If you already own a heat pump, regular servicing from us will keep the filters and internal components clean and dust-free, virtually eliminating the particles that are currently being blown out of your heat pump and into the internal environment.
Whether we install or service, there is a lot we can do to greatly reduce the indoor air pollution at your home or office, so contact us today.
